Constance Sussanne Moehler (nee Wimberley) Age 71, of Port Lavaca, TX, passed away on January 1, 2017. She passed after fighting the ravages of stage IV colon cancer for 4.5 years. She fought a valent battle against this horrible disease. She will be missed by all that knew her.
Connie was uncomplicated. She was apple pie and clothes dried in the sun and the smell of fresh bread baking. I think people thought of her as a friend.
She was survived by Michael Wolfe Moehler her husband of 52 years, her daughter Christina Maria Gibson, her son Joseph Otto Moehler, her granddaughters Mikaela Brylee Gibson, Taitum Amae Vela and Xylie Constance Moehler, by her two sisters Barbara Carol Foos and Vicki Lynn Raines, and by numerous family relatives. She was preceded in death by her mother Opal Vernell Wimberley, her father James Odis Wimberley and her son Christopher Moehler.
Connie was a person of deep faith and a love of all that she met. She graduated from Messick High School, Memphis City Schools, Memphis, TN. After graduation she entered the Methodist School of Nursing, Memphis, TN. After a year and a half of RN training she met her husband Michael Wolfe Moehler. They fell in love and were married. They moved to Kearney, NJ where Connie obtained a job as a secretary with IBM in Newark, NJ. After 4 years, they moved back to Memphis, TN. While there Connie obtained a job with Owens-Illinois as a private secretary. After her husband joined the US Air Force, Connie followed him as he was reassigned to different Air Force bases across the USA.
While her husband was in the Air Force, she graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor's college degree in education. She spent the next 32 years as a classroom teacher. She taught all grades from Pre-K through 12th grade honors English. She received many honors as a classroom teacher and was highly sought after by parents as the teacher of their children.
Constance was loved by so many people! She fought the good fight and now is in the bosom of Abraham.
